Is there a difference in quality between Dollar Store DVD's and The Archives films? Would I be able to show Dollar Store DVD's on our Public Access station, or am I safer to use The Archives films? I bought "White Zombie" the sound barely audible.

A few direct comparisons of the archive filmw with the $1 DVDs show that the transfers are usually very close in quality. Occasionally, the $1 editions, particularly some old Van Beuren cartoons, look better then the versions uploaded here. The latest $1 SUPERMAN collections, which seem to be the ones to which some studio added sound FX a few years ago, are identical to the archive versions.

Do not know if you can legally show the films or not. I purchased a Dollar video entitled "Tales Of Tomorrow". I reencoded the video using EZDVD maker and submitted it to this site. However, the video was rejected for copyright reasons. Although the video claimed to be taken from the Public Domain, the archive claimed that the SCIFI network owned the copyright. I do not know who is telling the truth; but I suggest you check into it a little further before airing the show.

The Roan Group's White Zombie has the best restored audio.

I wouldn't recommend other public domain versions as the audio is bad as you found out.
